Hello all,

Just wanted to drop a note and let anyone that may be interested know that
DLZ-0.7.0 has been released.  DLZ is a patch for Bind that allows all DNS
data to be stored in an external database instead of loaded into ram when
Bind starts.  This can greatly reduce Bind's startup time & allows immediate
updates to DNS data without the need to refresh or reload.

This release includes a new driver called BDBHPT (Berkeley DB High
Performance Text).  It is capable of serving between 5,000 and 12,000
queries per second depending upon it's configuration.  An un-modified Bind
serves 16,000 queries per second on the test hardware used.  Full
performance testing results are also available on the DLZ website.

In addition to the BDBHPT driver DLZ has drivers for MySQL, PostgreSQL,
ODBC, LDAP, and can use a file system as a database as well.  DLZ has been
used in production by many people and proven itself to be stable with few
reports of problems or bugs.  All downloads from the DLZ website are
released under a BSD license just like Bind itself.  For more information or
to download DLZ visit the website at http://bind-dlz.sourceforge.net
